Sumner Redstone Says That All Newspapers Will Be Gone In Two Years
from the how's-that-crystal-ball dept
Sumner Redstone, who controls both Viacom and CBS, apparently thinks that all newspapers will be gone in two years. We’ll be sure to check back on this prediction at the end of April in 2012. That said, he’s most likely correct in his criticism of Rupert Murdoch that he made a big mistake investing in print newspapers, but the claim that there “won’t be any newspapers in two years,” seems unlikely. Of course, it’s also worth noting that Redstone predicted that he will live forever, so perhaps we can chalk all this up to octogenarian hyperbole. But, if I were a betting man and were to bet on who’d live longer: print newspapers or Sumner Redstone… I think I’d side with the newspapers.
